Glazed Mushrooms

Don’t these make a fancy appetizer???

I adore the shape of mushrooms, they look very cute. If I can serve them without altering their shape I would jump for it. That’s why I often make stuffed mushrooms and now these glazed mushrooms.

I had a whirlwind of a weekend as we moved to our new house. We moved on Friday and the weather cooperated well with us showering warmth and sunshine. After we moved in, I wanted to unpack the boxes and organize everything right away. I hate mess, so I couldn’t stand the sight of things being scattered around in my house. Well, unpacking started on Saturday morning and till Sunday night we were busy with it. While I was into beautifying my new kitchen, my hubby was sprucing up the man cave. He got everything that he wants in his man cave and I can foresee him heading straight into his cave after he comes back from work. Hmm…

Anyway, I am in love with my new kitchen and so couldn’t wait longer to have some cooking fun. I attacked right away without any denial šŸ˜› I am also looking forward to making some cooking videos pretty soon as I love to talk about food and show how to cook, hope at least some might find it useful.

It’s been a week since my last post, and I felt very uncomfortable without blogging. As I’ve mentioned blogging helps me to relax and I feel good after I share recipes with my my readers.

These glazed mushrooms are very easy to make, in fact it only takes 15 minutes of your time. These definitely make a very fancy finger food or appetizer and you can whip in no time. So get ready to glaze some whole mushrooms…

Glazed Mushrooms

Ingredients

  • Mushrooms, brown or white – 20 whole
  • Oil- 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Soy sauce, low sodium- 4 tbsp
  • Ground lemon grass- 1/2 tsp (optional) or use any other herbs for flavor
  • Ground pepper- 1/2 tsp
  • Honey- 2Ā tbsp
  • WhiteĀ sesame seeds- to sprinkle on the glazed mushrooms

Instruction

  • I used ground lemon grass, if you don’t have it go ahead and use any of your favorite dried herbs like oregano, basil etc
  • Clean the mushrooms by wiping it with wet paper towel or kitchen towel, keep aside.
  • Place a large non-stick cooking pan over medium heat, add oil and swirl the pan to spread oil all over it.
  • Place mushrooms tail side up over the oil.
  • Let cook for a few minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, ground lemon grass and ground pepper, cook till mushrooms start to get light golden spots.
  • Pour the prepared soy mixture over the mushrooms.
  • Cover with a lid Ā and cook for a few minutes, till mushroom turns tender.
  • Open the lid, pour honey over the mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • In no time the sauce will start to bubble up.
  • Cook till the sauce has thickened and mushrooms are glazed well.
  • Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Let it cool down a bit.
  • Before serving, dip the glazed mushrooms in white sesame seeds. If you are using white mushrooms dip in black sesame seeds for a color contrast.
  • Place the tail side up on a platter and serve. If there is any sauce left in the pan, drizzle it over the mushrooms.
  • You could even place a tooth prick on top of the mushroom so that it would be easy for your guests to take it.
